Our daily processes are based on the model of Maria Montessori:

"Help me to do it on my own. Show me the way. Don´t do it for me."

This means for our team to care  with every child respectfully, kind, carefully and helpfully. We draw attention of the children to the complete surrounding to motivate them in the support of there complete development.

Children are naturally eager to learn with their own motivation. In the way they get to know there surrounding. They collect experiences and knowledge to understand how the world works.
